NDRA FCs Featured at Stratford Spectacular

The NDRA Alcohol Funny Car Series presented by Ohsweken Speedway will be a featured part of the Stratford Spectacular Hot August Nationals this coming weekend…

Presented by NAPA Auto Parts & Ideal Supply, at Grand Bend Motorplex August 10-12, that category will compliment the PMRA, Quick 32, PBSS series. 

The third event in the four race NDRA Alcohol Funny Car Series marks a return to the track that hosted the first event in series’ history earlier this season. “We’re very happy to be returning to Grand Bend for the second time this season and with the momentum we gained at our last race we’re looking forward to putting on a great show at the Stratford Spectacular,” said Series President & Director of Operations Dale Boeru. 

The last event yielded an impressive performance from Paul Noakes and his Meritor/Euclid sponsored Mustang, adding another angle to the already tight series championship chase. The current point’s leader is Larry Dobbs of Welland, Ontario who won the first event in series history back in May. Dobbs is followed by Vince Rastelli of Gasport, New York, runner-up at the first event, and Brian White of Cicero, New York sits third after a runner-up finish at the Canadian Nitro Nationals in June. Noakes currently sits fifth in the standings, having attended only one event thus far, and could make things interesting should he be able to repeat his performance from the last event. 

Joining the NDRA Alcohol Funny Car Series presented by Ohsweken Speedway at the Stratford Spectacular Hot August Nationals will be a plethora of nitro methane fueled vehicles. The line-up will include a trio of Nitro Harley Davidson motorcycles, the fastest of which is piloted by Rob Brown, as well as the Pony Up Mustang Nostalgia Nitro Funny Car of Gary Kraus. Smax Smith will also take some shots at the quarter-mile with his Leverich Racing Top Fuel Dragster. 

This event will also be the sixth, in the seven race Pro Modified Racing Association series, and will include the Quick 32 Series presented by NAPA Auto Parts, as well as the Wiseco Pro Bike and Sled Series, all mainstays on the Ontario racing scene.

2012 marks the inaugural campaign for the NDRA and its Alcohol Funny Car Series presented by Ohsweken Speedway.

The Alcohol Funny Car division represents one of the most exciting groups of vehicles and competitors in all of motorsport. Reaching speeds of more than 250 miles per hour in less than six seconds over the quarter mile racing distance is just the beginning. These 3000 horsepower machines feature flip top carbon fiber bodies that often sport paint schemes and names as unique as the men and women who drive them.

With four events on the 2012 calendar, spread between two respected facilities, this will prove to be a landmark year for the NDRA, its competitors and fans.

The NDRA Alcohol Funny Car Series is proudly presented by Ohsweken Speedway and supported by Insight Graphics & Design, Fast Entertainment and Canadian Drag Racer Magazine.
